Just looking to see if anyone ever done online classes... I failed one of my classes this term, & i was not allowed to continue the second half. In order to receive my credit for the course and remain fulltime i have to do it online ( no inclass classes until sept. ). I will be in school for my other courses (3) & online for one. How did you find it compared to inclass learning?

 I was better at online classes than in class. I could review the instructors words and did not have to take notes.

This is for chemistry


Quoting laranadtony:

A little easier actually but it depends on the class.

My advisor said things like keyboarding, languages, and brushing up on software and applications is ok online as long as you have finals in a classroom but that I should not take any of my other classes online.

I only took keyboarding and excel online. I am taking spanish in the classroom but it is only once a week.

That is mostly memory, so yeah, I would excel online in that class better than in the classsroom.

I hate online classes. I feel that it is not really teaching me anything or giving me more valuable tools verses when I attend classes in person. The goal of having instructors is to help you better understand the topic and subjects being taught. If you have a good instructor they will teach other tools not in the book and provide more resources and information. I prefer having the teacher and lecture, but then again I enjoy my interpreters. I think the online classes were crap, I pretty forgot most of what I did online verses the stuff I learned in class.

Thats what Im scared of :( I did my ged myself..but that is all basic stuff. I failed chemistry after having tutors etc and being in class, hopefully this time it sticks..otherwise ill have to take pyshics... Which will be just as bad lol

I dont know if you can do this but...

I hate math, I fail math. I have a hard time devoting to math LOL

When I started school I decresed my schedule to lowest possible that financial aid would allow and did two easy classes, one hard, then math. I kept my schedule low until I finished my math....

This helped, it helped me not get overwhelmed with math and my other subjects.

I did manage to complete my math within one year, I am completely with math now.

Reduce your load if you have a class you know you will struggle so you can devote more to it and not be overwhelmed.

Almost all of my classes have been online. I do MUCH better in an actual classroom setting (depending on the class).
